If you suggested that a lima bean and green olive salad was “delicious,” I’d probably not believe you… however, this simple side really is fantastic – if you like olives.
My Grandmother’s Lima Bean & Green Olive Salad Recipe
- Jar of green olives
- Frozen lima beans
- Mayonnaise (Duke’s is my preference)
- Make the lima beans according to the directions, adding in butter, salt & pepper if you wish.
- Cool the lima beans after they are cooked.
- Slice up the olives.
- Mix up about 1.5 tablespoons of mayo, some of the olive juice from the jar, lima beans, and the olives – and you’re done!
This makes an easy side to keep in the fridge to have it lunch – but we’ve enjoyed with grilled grouper, pork chops & fried chicken this summer.
